Fade Out

You can see the fading on this copy of Gnaoua. The light purple covers fade to a pink color over time. This mag is one of the great one-shots. A vivid snapshot of the Tangier expat scene in the mid-1960s with a great selection of Burroughs material. The Burroughs items, Pry Yourself Loose and Listen, Notes on Page One, Ancient Face Gone Out, and Just So Long and Long Enough, were also issued as an offprint. If I remember correctly, the Nelson Lyon sale had one of the offprints. That is the only one I have ever heard of. The rest have, yes, faded away.
